My first haiku

You pave a new path
jump, bounce and hop up and down
come shine a new day


Techniques: the background fabric is a mono print. The top layer is a polyester fabric that has been laminated with old newspaper clippings with the help of a thermofax screen; this piece was then laminated with silver leaf and silk screened with fabric paint (jumping people). The "haiku" poem has been printed directly to a leftover piece of the background fabric.

This is great! I really enjoyed reading about your techniques... I could see the newsprint..nice touch...I have never done monoprint. Your Haiku defintely matches your piece... or I guess it is actually the other way around...'my first Haiku'... for 'Beginnings', good going....

This is fun just to look at and contemplate. I really have to learn these techniques with paper and wax this year. I love your colors as well.

I love the joy and optimism of this piece - haiku and artwork. You are brave using so many neat techniques; that's something I need to get into. You inspire me!
